Description

Electricity - Tier 0

Ranged Damage

Chain Lightning allows you to emit a powerful, directed blast of electrical energy at a target, which can arc to other nearby targets as well.


Effects

Tap

  • Single target Electrical damage.
  • Chance of applying Negative Ions, a short duration effect which some Electricity attacks can take advantage of.
  • Hitting a target affected by Negative Ions will cause this power to arc to an additional target.

Charge

  • Chains the effects of the Tap action up to three additional targets in proximity to other affected targets. Hitting targets affected by Negative Ions will increase the maximum amount of targets it can chain to.
  • Charging does not increase the energy cost or damage of Chain Lightning.

Advantages

Accelerated Metabolism

Every time you use this ability you have a chance to return a small amount of energy.

Challenging Strikes

  • This advantage increases the threat caused by this attack against all affected targets, making them more likely to attack you.
  • If this advantage is applied to a power that has a recharge time, it will additionally add a moderate amount of threat over time to all affected targets, for the duration of the recharge.
  • This advantage inflicts a 5% damage debuff against all affected targets. If an affected enemy attacks you, it will quickly reduce this debuff's strength. Conversely, any damage you inflict restores the debuff's strength.

Lightning Helix

Adds an additional, random Arc to your Chain Lightning. This Arc may go to the same target that another Arc goes to, hitting that target twice, or may go to another nearby target. The additional Arc also benefits from additional chaining via consuming Negative Ions.




Superconductor

  • Applies Superconductor to targets affected by Negative Ions.
  • Superconductor reduces target's resistance to Electric damage by 18%.
